5:01 am
hello, everybody. a calmer morning what we wake up to now. which is great, considering what we had to deal with yesterday. look at the maps. clean and green and clear. 270 southbound looking great here out of frederick towards the split. tracking it, find lanes wide open. taking it back to the maps. this time to prince georges county area. route 4, route 5, 301, no complaints. incident an accident free. in the clear from fairfax county parkway to beltway. 267 no problems to report. inner loop, 395 to the toll road, only 13 minutes. speaking of toll road, check it in real time in the next report at 5:09. 5:01. an hour ago, metro decided to reopen farragut north station in time for morning rush. >> red line station had been closed since yesterday when a chunk of concrete fell from the
5:02 am
ceiling onto the platform where passengers were standing. kristin fisher joins us live with more on how this may have happened. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. great news for commuters this morning. overnight structural engineers have been examining the ceiling at this farragut north metro station, and as you said, they determined it is indeed safe for metro riders. it will reopen, actually opened a few moments ago. now, this station actually shut down around 8:00 last night after chunks of concrete fell to the platform yesterday afternoon. incredibly, no one was hurt. d.c. fire officials say one of the chunks was the size of a human head. certainly large enough to cause some sort of serious injury to anyone standing below. apparently it was caused by construction work taking place on connecticut, completely unrelated to metro. d.c. fire officials say construction crews hit a ventilation valve in the station's ceiling which
5:03 am
loosened the concrete, caused a piece to fall. metro closed that station citing abundance of caution. they apologized for the inconvenience. the inconvenienced riders didn't seem too surprised. >> that's what the metro does, right? we are kind of used to it at this point. i am sure i'll get on a train, have to get off, get on tomorrow, have it stop, and, you know, the usual. >> reporter: metro again says it is not their fault, it was caused by the construction over there, just above the tunnel, above the platform at the farragut metro station. for many metro riders, they see it as yet another major mishap in metro service. back to you. >> what about metro's response time yesterday afternoon? there was controversy, we heard they didn't notify emergency officials fast enough. >> reporter: well, it took about an hour for metro to notify d.c. fire and police
5:04 am
about this incident. that's important because they were needed to close down this section of connecticut directly above the platform. there was fear that vibrations caused by cars could dislodge yet another piece of concrete. and ultimately they did close down this section of connecticut, but not before thousands of metro riders used that metro station and literally stood beneath the section where that concrete piece fell. some scary stuff. certainly a lot of people are looking at and questioning metro's response time. back to you. >> all right. kristin fisher live from northwest. 5:04. it appears a local hospital reached agreement with nurses threatening to walk out next wednesday. the nurse's union will no longer hold a work stoppage at washington hospital center. it was supposed to take place day before thanksgiving. under this agreement, new wage rules will not go into effect until next march. in return, nurses now say they
